Our community

Beginning leave, I am filled with a sense of gratitude which inspired this

Where does it begin?

Community puts down roots

In the hearts of each

It’s leaves and branches

Spring forth

In word and deed


By the richly poor man

From Assisi


Based in faith

Of the richly poor man

From Nazareth

From the young

And the less so


The encouraging word

Plenty of smiling ‘hellos’

Support in time of need

Praise for effort

Supportive challenge

Loving correction

Laughs and jokes

Thought-provoking questions

Reflection and prayer


Such caring expressions

Bind us together

And so we become what we believe

God islove



Loving God, we thank you for the gift that is the Ave Maria community. As much as we are supported by it may we do all we can to build it up and so continue to learn that it is in giving that we receive.
